Meaningful Use Stage 1 Reporting

Do I need to report on all the Stage 1 Meaningful Use measures?

There are a total of 25 Meaningful Use objectives for eligible professionals (EPs) who participate in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. To qualify for an incentive payment, 20 of these 25 objectives must be met. There are 15 required core objectives. The remaining 5 objectives may be chosen from the list of 10 menu set objectives. Certain objectives do provide exclusions. If an EP meets the criteria for that exclusion, then the EP can claim that exclusion during attestation. However, if an exclusion is not provided, or if the EP does not meet the criteria for an existing exclusion, the EP must meet the measure of the objective in order to successfully demonstrate Meaningful Use and receive an EHR incentive payment.
